It was with great disappointment that we recently learned of your decision not to race the Ironman Hawaii World Championships. Our little triathlon hearts twittered when you recently tweeted:
“no Kona for me. Unless hangin out, riding bikes, and swimming w/ whales over the holidays count”
So in a desperate, last-ditch effort to try to convince you to come and race at the greatest triathlon event on the planet, here are 10 reasons we think you should come race Ironman Hawaii.

Have you ever wondered what goes into Lance Armstrong’s bike? Do you know what separates his bike from his teammates? If you were a pro triathlete, and a bike manufacturer gave you a bike for sponsorship, how would that make you feel? As a “regular person” what kind of technology can you get in cycling, and most importantly, is it worth it?
The answers to these questions are tied together. They all deal with a bicycle rider, a bicycle, and the relative value they place on that bike versus themselves. Could it really be that simple? Yes.
